SLITHM and CHSGA launch PROPEL program

The Ceylon Hotel Schools Graduates Association (CHSGA) in collaboration with Sri Lanka Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management (SLITHM) recently launched the PROPEL program aimed at soft skills development of final year SLITHM students.The event was held on the 24th and 25th of August 2018 at Pegasus Reef Hotel.

“PROPEL” training program is a value addition to the already established curriculum of SLITHM. Soft skills development is vital for those who seek employment in the hospitality sector as they will be working in challenging environments where clear communication, presentation and public speaking are considered as core competencies.

The sustainability of this initiative will be vital in producing hospitality leaders who posses a wide range of skills required to take Sri Lankan hospitality to greater heights. CHSGA will further collaborate with SLITHM to uplift standards of hospitality education which in return will also increase the brand value of the two organizations.
